Ninja Explains His Choice Not to Stream with Female Gamers

With more than 10 million subscribers, Twitch’s most popular streamer has plenty of both male and female fans, but Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has chosen not to stream with gamers of the opposite gender. Blevins, who is happily married, suggests the internet is obsessed with gossip: many things you say or do could easily backfire on you.

With fame comes scrutiny of everything you say or do, he suggested, and that can sometimes lead to questions about who you’re sleeping or flirting with on the sly. "If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever," Blevins told Polygon.
